My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

My alarm clock - Cricket
Today at church when 12:00 came Cricket hopped up ... the lady beside me laughed as we realized that Cricket's inner clock was telling her it was time to go. That is amazing to me but she is right - it is supposed to get over at 12. She is our alarm clock in the mornings - 6 am sharp ... well, she actually thinks it should be 5:45 but we make her wait until 6 ... then, 3 p.m. is dinner time ... (even though this one doesn't always happen at that time - it is when she begins to hope and if we are home she will go by her bowl - if we are elsewhere she may begin to stare me down hoping that I get the message.) Anyone with dogs can relate?
